The wonderful hot weather we have had has been so enjoyable but so very hard to travel in a car and in traffic jams. We have so many road works going on our roads are so hard to get through.
Monday Ray had a CT scan carried out as he has a lump in his groin so I went shopping while he had this done.
Tuesday we travelled by train very early to Wellingborough as we were both talking at ESS Face Fit. I love this venue as they are a great bunch that have always made us so welcome and I did a talk at the seminar last year.
We arrived at Wellingborough Station and was met by two old friends and was whisked away in a Honda 4 x4 pure luxury.
The Seminar soon got underway.
Daniel Hill started the talks for ESS Safeforce
Alan Murray from BSIF gave a real fascinating talk
Our lovely Fred Charlton spoke about the history of RPE
After lunch Ray and I spoke and as usually everybody is amazed at Rays story of Chatham Dockyard
Mark Webster and Harry McCormack from Globus Group
Silicone-based products have long been used in manufacturing because they make excellent lubricants and release agents.
But there is a down side – silicone contamination.
The same properties that make silicone excellent lubricants and release agents causes them to be an enemy of adhesion, therefore a serious contaminant in bonding applications. This results in surface defects and a poor quality finish.
One environment where silicone contamination is a major concern is in coating operations, such as automotive refinishing. Even traces of silicone can result in adhesive failure, causing primers and paints or other coatings to “fisheye”.
They are very active with out NHS
Brian Martin of Dust Solutions gave a good demonstration of power tools and dust collection.
We then had Nadia Misbah putting us through our paces of GDPR The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective 25 May, 2018, enhances the security of personal information of citizens and residents of the EU countries as well as Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein. The unified standard also will cover UK citizens and residents post-Brexit. It’s hard to imagine a company or industry offering goods or services in Europe that won’t be affected by these detailed personal data protection requirements.
They’re rigorous but reasonable and consistent with the spirit of security and transparency in which we’ve handled personal information in the past, not only in Europe but around the globe but we learnt so much about the subject that we now run our lives around it all.
A great Question and Answer was had and it was time to say goodbye and we were driven back to the station to travel home.
It had been a great day
Wednesday we had to travel in the most awful traffic to get to the Royal Marsden to have my second Infusion of my Drug.
The doctor told me that if the MK3475-28 doesn’t work then the MDU, multidisciplinary team,have had a discussion and have lined me up for another trial just in case. It was great to learn of a back up plan.
We left late, thanks to the pharmacy, but my oh my !! the traffic. 1.5hurs just to travel the M26. I get so frustrated
We arrived home at 8pm after leaving the house at 6am.
Thursday Ray had an appointment to collect his new hearing aides –Whoopee !! no more repeating or shouting to make myself heard.
It was to hot to travel.
Friday Ray dropped me off at the Hospital again as I had to go to a East Kent Cancer Action Group (CAG) meeting.
It was one of the best I had been to as it was very interactive. if anyone in Kent would like to become a member please join us.
Kent & Medway Cancer Action Partnership and Cancer Action Groups
We first met in 2001 as a “Cancer Patients’ Forum” following a Government initiative to involve patients in their own care. We became the ‘KMCC Service User Locality Group’, with our own Partnership Co-ordinator.
In 2016, after a consultation review it was decided to rebrand and rename the Locality Groups. The groups are now called Medway Cancer Action Group, West Kent Cancer Action Group and East Kent Cancer Action Group CAGs for short and the Kent & Medway Cancer Action Partnership is the over arching umbrella of these groups.
The members of the Cancer Action Groups are:
Cancer service users – patients, ex-patients, carers, family members
Representatives from the voluntary sector, including cancer support groups
Healthcare professionals who work in cancer services and have an interest in user involvement
Then like everyone else we have had violet thunderstorms I couldn’t get all our windows closed quick enough so we have a broken window it has to broken hinges.
Oh dear another bill !!
Ray has had a letter that they are not happy with his scan and has to go for another on as it isnt a Hernia oops !!! they might have to do a Bi-Op here we go again.
Scanexity for Ray now
